A&J Produce Corporation has embarked on a long-term partnership with Produce Pro to integrate its current terminal market operations with Produce Pro’s industry-specific system.
This will allow A&J to continue to focus on its customers providing them with quality, service, freshness, and value. A&J will benefit from a real-time inventory and lot tracking solution with Produce Pro.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with A&J Produce Corp and to provide them with a complete solution for their business needs,” said Marc Hatfield, Produce Pro national sales manager. “A&J needed a solution that would bring both their fruit and vegetable operations into one system. They wanted a solution that would provide a return on investment through improving their operating efficiency and in return would grow their business.”
“Produce Pro has other NY Terminal Market customers so we were able to see the system before they even came here, and knew it’s capabilities,” said Thomas Tramutola of A&J. “After we met with their industry-knowledgeable team for a demonstration, we weighed the options and decided that Produce Pro was the best long-term solution for A&J.”
“We switched onto Produce Pro the first week in March and within just a week we noticed we were saving time,” said Jason Weiler of A&J. “The system is freeing up employees from having to double-enter information or look through files for past pricing data.”
“With every customer we view the relationship as a long-term business partnership,” said Dave Donat, president of Produce Pro. “A&J’s operation on the NY Terminal Market is growing, and we look forward to supporting them for many years to come.”
In 1977, three friends founded A & J with the acquisition of three units on Row A in the Hunts Point Terminal Market. Today, more than 30 years later, a much larger A & J still thrives on the same principles that Al Weiler, Joe Levantino and John Tramutola Sr brought to the market that first day: quality, service, freshness, and Value.
For the past 20 years, Produce Pro has been supporting many of the best-run companies in the fresh produce industry providing an end-to-end system that includes sales order entry, purchasing, inventory management, routing and logistics, accounting, E-commerce, EDI, document imaging, mobile apps, and warehouse management.
